Girl writing her name incorrectly on the nikaah certificate

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a girl does not write her name properly, or writes something else instead of her signature on nikaah documents (niqah-naama), is this nikaah valid?


A: Prior to the nikah, if she gave consent for the nikah to be performed, and her nikah was performed with her name, the nikah will be valid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
